Waiting on Wednesday (11/16/11): Destined by Jessie Harrell

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Well, I'm back again with my WoW! This is seriously tough- I mean, picking just one book out of thousands and thousands of great ones? Not easy, I tell you. Anyway, here's my pick of the week:

When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear. 
As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined. 
Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell.

Doesn't it sound great? I'm a huge fan of Greek mythology, plus the cover is gorgeous, so bonus points for that. :) I'm sooo excited- this comes out tomorrow! Can't wait to get my hands on this book!
